From the Shasta Public Library in Redding:

“Come join writer and poet Tim Hernandez for a discussion of his book All They Will Call You, and an hour-long writer’s workshop.

Delve into Hernandez’s years of painstaking investigative research of the airplane disaster which claimed the lives of 32 passengers, including 28 unnamed Mexican citizens—farm workers who were being deported by the U.S. government.

This FREE event is great for teens and adults.

This event is supported by the California Center for the Book and Poets & Writers, Inc. The California Center for the Book is supported in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum & Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administrated in California by the State Librarian.
